UPDATED, March 26, 10:20 a.m.: Bill Roy, the founder and CEO of a fintech company, purchased two combined condo units at Continuum in South Beach for $12.1 million.

Roy, founder of BlockGen Corp., bought units 2803 and 2804 at 100 South Pointe Drive in Miami Beach, property records show. Beverly Greene sold the 4,776-square-foot combined unit.

The condo sold for about $2,539 per square foot, and was the second-most-expensive sale in Miami-Dade County last week.

BlockGen Corp. is a Camano Island, Washington-based company that provides cryptocurrency mining products and services. The company has its corporate office in Miami, according to its website.

Property records show Greene bought the units for $5.5 million in 2007.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom combined condo hit the market in December with an asking price of $12.9 million.

Sheila Rojas of Brown Harris Stevens represented the seller, and Burton and Emily Wilkins with One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.

The unit is in the south tower of Continuum, which underwent renovations in 2019.

According to a spokesperson for One Sotheby’s International Realty, the recent sale was the highest-priced sale to close at the condo tower since 2019.

Last year, author Dan Buettner purchased a condo at Continuum for $5.6 million.
